The latest on racial profiling and anti-immigrant raids in Keele-Finch on August 14th

If you haven't yet, please sign and share this petition: It has a lot of useful information contextualizing what happened.

Know Your Rights guides and video that provide basic information to people without immigration status are available in English, French and Spanish:

WHAT IS A SANCTUARY PROVINCE: We are calling on Ontario to make all Ontario services and protections fully accessible to Ontarians without full immigration status. This means, no requests for immigration identification for social entitlements and protections, and no sharing of immigration status information with federal authorities. Absolutely no coordination or resources sharing between any Ontario agency and Federal immigration authorities.

Honouring Evelyn: Solidarity with Migrant and Sex Workers

Posted in

Evelyn Bumatay Castillo was murdered on Saturday, October 11th at Quality Inn near Toronto International Airport. 43-years-old and a Filipino citizen, Evelyn came to Canada as a temporary foreign worker in January 2013. While caring for a family with three children, Evelyn was also working as an independent sex worker. Evelyn is survived by an 86-year-old mother in the Philippines and a 22-year-old son, who she had not seen in 10 years while working abroad to support her family.

The pressure is working! Let's keep pushing! MTO to review collaboration with CBSA

Posted in

After much public outrage and mobilization against the mass raids of undocumented workers on August 14th in Toronto, Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca has asked officials in his ministry to review its collaboration with immigration enforcement. The Toronto Star reported that the investigations will involve the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) going above and beyond its jurisdiction and allocating provincial resources to do the work of federal ministries, including racial profiling and abuse of power.

This is a step in the right direction, but nothing short of a clear declaration of Ontario as a Sanctuary Province is enough. Join your voice with ours, and sign this petition:

Reportback from Wynne Don't Do Harper's Dirty Work rally and march

Toronto -- Over 50 of us protested outside the Ontario Ministry of Corrections on Monday August 18th, against the early morning raids, racial profiling, and detention of undocumented workers that took place August 14th, 2014. Under the guise of a "vehicle safety stop," Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) supported by Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and Ministry of Transportation officials racially profiled, forcefully ID checked, arrested and detained at least 21 migrants who were on their way to work, some arrested on foot, in the Jane and Finch and surrounding neighbourhoods.
